Angry Birds Star Wars is launching the day after tomorrow, this November 8th, and as such Rovio has started to tease us with more videos. First up is the gameplay trailer, which shows us how all the birds look like characters from the Star Wars movie franchise, complete with abilities based on their characters, heh. The Red bird has a lightsaber which that deflect laser shots from Stormpiggies and take down entire structures, while the Yellow Bird looks like Han Solo and has the ability to make strafing runs over the course of his trajectory.
Then there’s the black bird Obi-wan Kenobi which can force push a structure before hitting it. There’s also the Pink Bird Princess Leia who has a similar laser shot to the Han Solo bird, and the R2-D2 bird which can electrocute everything in a certain radius. There’s also Chewie which seems like he can just roll over anything, heh. Check it out below:
